Yeah, as a fresh mobile customer of Telus, I'm not sure where to start. Maybe chronologically.
I called in again today, and fired out all of the above. I'm waiting for what they are going to do. I post this as I am very unhappy with how Telus treats my brain. Shame on you big company. Know that I have other choices and even the choice of not having the phone at all.
If the offer stated a $10 credit then bill is correct. The definition of a credit is a reduction in the balance owing after tax. In the end was your amount owing $10 less than what it would be without it?
If the offer stated a $10 discount then the bill is not correct. The definition of a discount is a reduction in price. Normally unless explicitly stated prices are before tax.
This is basic accounting.
Can you please then do the math and make my $35/month plan be $25/month after that credit is applied? All is before the tax.
The advertisement stated my plan would be $25/month after the $10 credit.
